Every year the country celebrates Sinhala and Tamil New Year in grand scale, but the community at large has forgotten the ‘isolated community’. A blind individual never gets a chance to participate in fun-filled Avurudu activities such as Kanamutti Bindeema, Andayata Kiri Keweema or Aliyata Ehe Thebeema.

Last year, SocialService.lk broke this barrier and blessed the blind community with a wonderful platform to enjoy their New Year celebration. They are gearing up to host the annual ‘Avurudhu Uthsayawa with the Visually Impaired’, for the second consecutive time this year on the Apirl 30 at Henry Pedris Grounds, Havelock from 9 am to 4 pm.

SocialService.lk is the only humanitarian organization which presents events of such nature. After its inception in 2014 to date, SocialService.lk has completed more than 80 projects ranging from immediate relief assistance to long term, sustainable community schemes. It serves the deserving needy regardless of religion, caste, race, ethnicity or gender.

SocialService.lk is preparing improve their annual ‘Avurudu with the Visually Impaired’, event and create awareness among the general public about a community which has been isolated for many years. A community deprived of leading life as ordinary people, deprived of opportunities, walking as normal people in the roads, special facilities and many other amenities. Ultimately, this community is ignored and forgotten as society continues to disrespect and reject them.

SocialService.lk is looking forward to host an extraordinary event in concept as well as in magnitude. All are welcome to take part in this benevolent cause. For more information and volunteering please contact 0772333287 or 0770136068.
